“As the World Cup continues, a report just came out that football fans in Russia have been drinking so much that bars are running out of beer. Russian bars didn’t order enough beer? What did they think a bunch a rowdy football fans were going to do? They’re like, ‘Guys, the next round is on me. Sauvignon blanc? Gin and cucumber? I got you.'” -James Corden

The dictionary definition of oxymoron is:- A rhetorical figure of speech in which contradictory terms are paired, for example, alone together, current history or boneless ribs. However, with an oxymoron the incongruous word pairing conveys a truth or a dramatic result.
It is possible to sub-divide English oxymorons into three main categories:
- a) Pure puns such as gourmet pizza.
- b) Accidents, like an original copy.
- c) Paradoxes, my favorite example is ‘serious joke’.
- d) An alternative zany definition for an oxymoron: One who forgets to breathe!
The word oxymoron is derived from the Greek oxumōros, which means ‘obviously foolish’, a Latin equivelent would be: contradictio in terminis. Incidentally, the related word sideroxylon specifically refers to a mismatch between the noun and its adjective, e.g. cold fire. As I ponder the word oxymoron, I cannot decide which plural is the better Oxymora or oxymorons. I also cannot get the syllable ‘moron’ out of my mind. 😁😎

Take the list of words below and arrange them into 3 sentences that all have something in common. Each word is only used once for each time it appears in the list. Punctuation is not an issue in this teaser in the initial placement of words. Only names are capitalized to start with.
DAD, LET, LETS, LEW, MARGE, MISSES, NO, NORAH, ORDERED, ROSES, SEE, SHARON’S, SIMON, TELEGRAM, TELL, WE’LL,
What are the sentences and what do they have in common?
Answer: 1: MARGE LETS NORAH SEE SHARON’S TELEGRAM.
2: WE’LL LET DAD TELL LEW.
3: NO MISSES ORDERED ROSES, SIMON.
All three sentences, when correctly placed, are palindromes. They read the same backward and forward.
Tuesday’s Quizzer is…… Super Scrabble is a game for eight players. Two boards are used, and the two sets of tiles are combined. The players, in turn, can play on either of the boards. To determine the order of play, each player draws a tile. Howard drew “T”, Betty drew “J”, Walter drew “H”, Lily drew “O”, Fred drew “B”, Nancy drew “F”, and Jason drew “M”. After drawing her letter, Alice asked, “Can anyone logically figure out what letter I drew?” After a few moments, Jason replied, “I know what letter you drew.” He was correct. What letter did Alice draw? How did Jason know?
